Posted on 03/21/2013 7:12:44 AM PDT by pepsi_junkie
At a press conference today in Ramallah, President Barack Obama addressed the assembled journalists while standing under a Yasser Arafat banner:
"Hope everyone saw presser. If not there, it was notable that Obama and Abbas spoke from under a banner bearing pictures of Arafat and Abbas. Also another big banner was hanging on wall nearby with Abbas kind of superimposed on Arafat," the White House pool reporter notes.

One of 0’s heroes, no doubt.
what a mean nasty thing to do
If the Israelis trust this Muslim sympathizer to protect them, they will be annihilated. They can’t be that gullible.
Actions ALWAYS speak louder than words. What does this tell you about the real oboma?
always supports murderers of US Ambassadors;
and expects the public to believe that
Arafat was giving the invalid
Mr. Klinghoffer a private swimming lesson.
we know for a fact that this admin pays special attention to the back drop, they get their colored faces in the crowd, they remove crosses or have them covered up but are we supposed to think that this was not noticed and I wonder how Bibi feels about seeing that.
oopsie ... Andrea forgot that she is not to be honest ... ever.
Of course obama wants to honor a terrorist pederast who died of AIDS.
They see themselves as victims of oboma. He's using U.S. resources to build a muslim caliphate to surround Israel.
oboma has done everything in his power to help the muslims while at the same time depleting every bit of American resourses he can, plus he's destroying our military so we can't come to Israel aid. He's taking the U.S., the "restrainer", out of his way.
(obomas targets in the U.S. have been our economy, our military, and he's confusing our government. Do these three areas rig a bell? Who else tried to destroy our economy, our military, and our government? Think about that a minute.)
The only sure result from this visit and his palestinian a**-kissing is that more Israelis will die.
Georgetown. Notre Dame covered up a wall. The administrations at these schools (since the 1950s at least DUH!) have no respect for Catholicism. Parents are stupid to spend their and their kids’ resources there, as the kids learn how to put down Catholicism. And they are stupid to be surprised.
They’re better off at a secular college.
According to a Georgetown spokeswoman, Julie Green Bataille:
“In coordinating the logistical arrangements for yesterday’s event, Georgetown honored the White House staff’s request to cover all of the Georgetown University signage and symbols behind Gaston Hall stage.”
“The White House,” she added, “wanted a simple backdrop of flags and pipe and drape for the speech, consistent with what they’ve done for other policy speeches.”
Turns out, the usual movable drapery barriers were not tall enough to hide the cross and IHS emblem, a traditional Catholic abbreviation for the name of Jesus Christ. So the school agreed to cloak the entire wall structure with the religious symbols. (See photos) Our colleague Mark Silva has more details here.
The Democratic White House explained the move as a desire to keep the backdrop for presidential speeches consistent and not distracting to the audience. The president, who has yet to select a local parish for his family in Washington, has described his religion as “Christian.”
It tells me that some of the people in this country in hig positions of authority to protect and defend Catholicism are wimps of a very high order and Dante illustrates a special place for them in their eternity, which they seem to be ignoring.
We already know who BO is, and so do they.
They are horrible.
The new Pope does not go in for mixing it up with politicians and had fallen out of favor with many Jesuits who go for liberation theology _ NOT a requirement for being a Jesuit, which has its roots in authentic Catholicism.
It is a fact. Look at the reports of what happened at Georgetown regarding how sensitive the Muz in chief was to the backdrop.
Those wimps, not defending Catholicism and the crucifixion.
If they’re not sorry, looking at this story, they
re going to be very, very, sorry later
Me thinks Net set him up. That’s why I like Net...he’s Mister Obvious with a smile.
Anyone who doesn’t realize this guy’s true intentions is fooling themselves....total suckers. He uses these visual clues constantly to communicate where his real allegiances fall.
Me thinks Net set him up. Thats why I like Net...hes Mister Obvious with a smile.
I’d like to think the Mossad and Bibi has some rather explosive information reguarding his eligibility that they are just sitting on and waiting for the other shoe to drop...
I’d like to think my dreams can come true...
Exactly. Every gesture, every backdrop is planned and has a meaning.
He’s a angry guy. Return that favor, pull out Obamas tree, declaring it diseased an run it thru a tree chipper on TV
I’m just suprised Oblahblah didn’t have his prayer rug tucked under his arm.
Yes, everything is there to see. Just open your eyes, folks.
Who does that? aren't people Lutherans or Catholics or Baptists? Thanks for posting that. It just hit me how telling that is.
Birds of a feather...
if they do they should drop it
Obama turned down an invite to talk to their congress, instead wanted to talk to university youth (radical groups). Compares this to his Cairo speech and invite to Muslim Brotherhood.
theory is..he is motivating them for civil unrest against current government...same pattern as Egypt.
Nice try Obama!!
Yup, threw a towel over Christ.
“d like to think my dreams can come true...”
They can and they do if you TRUST GOD. Thank Him and ask Him to come to the aid of our country.
Just kindred spirits. As ludicrous as building the yasar(that’s my baby)arafat peace memorial. Truly bizarro world.
Maybe there is no jeremiah wright church of “America and all it stands for stinks” branch in dc. Not that king hussein ever heard a disparaging remark from jerry about how bad America sucks and is out to kill all minorities.
if they do they should drop it
I think they are shrewdly holding onto it in case they need to use it to prevent Obama from destroying Israel, I would do the same too if Obama was such a threat to my country.
Luke 10:18... “And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as Baraq Ubawmaw...”
You can take the Community Organizer out of Chicago...
If same pattern as Egypt...would include Soros funded NGOs agitating, stirring up ...youth
I agree with you-and when Net is quiet and/or seemingly agreeable-watch out.
He reminds me of my cat when I’m brushing him; he purrrrs and seems to like it, but all of a sudden he’ll bite my hand.
I just hope the true Israelis know that there are Americans who find our present tyrant despicable and are truly saddened-no-sickened is a better word- by how he “represents” us around the world...Dear God have mercy on us.
Hey Sarge—what your referring to has more information at this link. Not endorsing the claim but it bears much interest regarding Luke 10:18.
Yeah, yeah, every liberal “fact checking” site has that, too. They can’t allow anything bad said about The Obama, The Messiah, The Won.
He’s a classless idiot. He has no sence of the fitness of things because he has no empathy, which makes him a psychpoath. He needs more coke and meth.
Yah. I love that depiction. Fitting.
psychpoath => psychopath
(It’s my Run With Scissors and Doesn’t Play Well With Others day...)
They don't trust Obama one bit.
It was planted in an "envelope" to totally contain it for removal.
Remember the story about the Russian "spy" rocks. (I think I remember that right.)
You can take the Community Organizer out of Chicago...
From Caroline Glick's article:
""The only revealing aspect of Obamas itinerary is his decision to on the one hand bypass Israels elected representatives by spurning the invitation to speak before the Knesset; and on the other hand to address a handpicked audience of university students an audience grossly overpopulated by unelectable, radical leftists."
Always the radical leftists!
Will the people of Washington D.C. finally discover who Obama is: THIS IS BARACK OBAMA: ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW, IN ONE PLACE
Or do they already know, and are complicit? If that's true, it's time for CWII.
